One of my Easter egger chicks has a half golf ball size lump on her front side. When I feel it it seems like it's just liquid. How do I cure this.

It may be the crop which looks pretty big on little chicks when full of food. It's on the chick's right side chest just under the neck. As long as it's soft there is no problem, but if it gets hard like it has been eating pine shavings, that is not good. Here is a picture of chicken (hen) anatomy:
